An empty datafield card opens:

Class - indicates on which document this datafield goes to. If you select “Common”, this datafield can be used for all documents in the list.

Visible by default - can be set whether this datafield is immediately visible on the document or should be added from the drop-down menu.

Warn if not filled - can be set whether a warning is displayed, a warning is not displayed or a warning is displayed and document cant be saved if this field is left blank.

Order - can be set in which order datafields are placed on document. For example, if 1 is marked in this datafield cell, it would always be the first datafield.
:!: Different levels datafields must be sorted from smaller to larger and must be set to visible by default when datafields are related.

Type - sets datafield type. If the Type cell is left blank, any content can be written in the datafield. If Type: Text is selected, different text can also be written to this datafield, but this type creates placeholder from the tabel Settings → Common settings → Auto text.
